Blonde on Blue: Britta @ Dunn Bros

   During my photo walk around the uptown area yesterday, I visited Dunn Bros coffee on Lake Street. Sitting at the outdoor tables in the warm sunshine was Britta. As we discussed the Blonde on Blue project we were joined by a woman of distinguished age who told us a tale from the 1940's. At that time, the silver-haired matron said, she, too, had been approached by a photographer asking to take her picture. Only this photographer wanted 25 cents She decided "yes" and told us she has never regretted it and treasures that picture from some 70 years ago. (Britta shown below)
